Not sure of chat kind of car you have, but it could be your ignition switch. It sounds like it is not sending power to the ignition circuit when you have the key in crank mode, but is with the key in the on position.

I have a 94 jeep cherokee that wont turn over or wont start?


No cranks is here
https://www.jeepdied.com/no-crank.html
TURNS OVER MEANS ZERO.
the starter just CRANK.
THE START MOTOR TURNS
IF lucky so does the crank shaft turn.
then the engine starts and runs, (this is not turns)
it's running
the EFI then sustains running , if ABS stays happy.
the engine can also stall.

Why did engine running, won't restart.


lots and lots of reasons, guessing. over 50 (bad engine?)
but does it crank?, no car starts unless it's cranked or
like my car, push started or gravity started (a 6sp m/t)
if engine fails to start , and cranks robustly (fast starter motor)
then
1: never tuned up, running 10 year old spark parts.
2: blow fuse. check fuses.
3:; lost spark, check spark.
4: flooding or loss of fueling. to unflood any engine, crank at wideopen throttle (oper, guide tells you that)
5: timing belt not changed at 60,000 miles it will fail, and will not start
or start have like 1/4 power.
6: lost compression in or more cylinders.?

or
get it serviced? if all that is too much work? or confusing.

Can weak battery cause car not to start


Does it crank ok? If it cranks ok, I doubt it's your battery? Did you try jumper cables? Be careful and hook them up right, if you try cables. If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If you have spark everywhere, use a gage and check correct fuel pressure.

93 Geo Storm standard Transmission 1.6 Engine Lately I have to push start it Replaced ignition switch Checked all the fuses Starters good Help 48 disabled female


bad fuel, is it old? fuel.
needs tuneup, air cleaner and spark plugs , at least.
if the starter cranks fast and dont' start,
but does push started. that means the spark is weak
when cranking, and marginal spark plugs can do that.
this car is really (under Geo snake skins) a
an Isuzu Impulse
and Isuzu is defunct there too. (double bad)

now my real guess......analysis...
im not sure your order stated.
the engine would not crank over with a key before the new switch or after?
and "starters good", does that mean , it still fails to crank start with key
but the hot wiring of starter does?
try this:
tell use what happens when you turn the key, is best.
I turn the key, and i get the dash board to light up,
lots of lights. and the CEL LaMP GLOWS.
the CEL lamp, means the ENGINE brain is alive.
then you turn the key to cranks (start) position.
  1. nothing happens.
  2. it only clicks
  3. it cranks slowly,
  4. it cranks fast, just like a new car does. fast. cranking.

1,2,3,4.?

and does jumper cable starts work>?
if this works , your battery is low. , discharged or dead, or bad.
if the battery keeps going low, its bad, or the alternator fails to charge the battery, or you have phantom drains , discharging it as you sleep.

my guess, (based on most common)
is #3, slow cranks, and spark plugs are long since gone.(fouled and gaps no longer in spec>)

Wont start


The symptoms are a little vague to help you well. I know that you have a 1999 Chevy Tahoe. The engine will crank but won't start. There is spark and you have double checked the timing. I don't know what you mean "The coolant pushes out hard". It sounds like you are saying that the head gasket has failed and when you crank the engine over, coolant is pushed out of the radiator. Primarily an engine needs fuel and spark, to run. Would you write back with more details. How is the fuel pressure? Did I interpret the coolant description correctly? If I did then I think we both know that needs to be taken care of first. I hope that helps, please write back with any updates or new questions, good luck.

My 1991 ford festiva wont crank replaced fuel pump and screen and fuel filter and fuel pump relay still wont crank and we have pushed the reset button what now help pls


Won't crank? Problem is with starter-have it tested.
If it cranks and won't start, check for spark at one of the spark plug wires. If no spark when the engine is cranking, the ignition circuit is the problem.

Why won't my car stay started when i put the key


these jeeps are famous for the crank sensor going when the car wont run check the injector circuit it will show no voltage if you change the crank sensor make sure you hold it in when you tighten the bolt if you start the engine and start getting misfire codes loosen the crank sensor push it in just a little bit more you only have a few thousands of an inch it makes a difference . new sensors have a cardboard circle glued on them to prevent you from pushing it in so it hits the flywheel i had an issue where it had to be pushed in twice to run right auto parts store 38.00 dealer wanted 170.00 i bought the 38.00 one hope this helps

Hard Start Toyota Landcruiser HZJ75


two first things to check fuel and spark ...fuel make sure your fuel pump is working its messy but the easiest way is to pull the fuel line "only one connection" and turn key to on then press gas pedal and gas should pump out if not fuel pump is bad... if thats not it you want to check for spark easiest way is to pull one of the spark plug wires and stick a screwdriver in the end then hold the screwdriver to where the metal shank is approx. 1/4" away from any metal surface ... hold the screwdriver without touching the metal shank!!! have someone crank the engine you should see a spark intermittently between the screwdriver and the metal youre holding it close to.. if thats ok the only other thing i can suggest is get a battery with more cca "cold cranking amps"..hope this helps..OH YA ON A SAFER NOTE!!!...DONT LOOK FOR SPARK WITH THE ENGINE WET WITH FUEL..
